    ExtremeUSB 2.0 Core 2100 Modules Enable True 480Mbps, Long Range USB 2.0
    Connectivity for Embedded Medical, Industrial Automation, KVM, and
    Digital Home Applications

    BURNABY, BC, Aug. 12 /CNW/ - Icron Technologies Corporation (TSX Venture:
IT), the developers of ExtremeUSB(R) today announced the release of the
ExtremeUSB 2.0 Core 2100 Module daughter boards. Implementing Icron's latest
generation ExtremeUSB(R) extension technology, the highly integrated Core 2100
Modules offer twice the range at half the price of previous Icron USB 2.0
solutions. These small form factor embedded modules enable Icron customers to
locate USB 2.0 devices, including keyboards, mice, web cameras, DVD players,
printers, scanners and MP3 players, remotely from a PC Host. Standard
implementations support USB 2.0 extension up to 100m over Cat5 and up to 10km
over fibre optics.
    "The Core 2100 Modules represent a major milestone in the evolution of
Icron's ExtremeUSB solutions. From simple Cat5 and Fibre optic extension
solutions to highly customized embedded applications, the Core 2100 modules
are flexible enough to meet the individual needs of our customers," states
Bill De Vries, Icron Technologies Product Marketing Manager. "Along with
adding features and performance, we have reduced board area requirements by
over 66% and reduced the total solution BOM by half as compared to our
previous generation modules."
    Icron's USB 2.0 extension solutions are ideal for multiple applications
including industrial automation/control, KVM extension and enterprise remote
desktops, security, digital signage, home network integration, automotive
telematics, and factory floor control.
    The ExtremeUSB 2.0 Core 2100 daughter boards are powered by
ExtremeUSB(R), Icron's patented technology that guarantees true remote USB 2.0
connectivity and full compatibility with existing USB 2.0 devices in the
market. The Core 2100 Modules and the previously released Ranger(R) 2101 and
2104 products support USB 2.0 and classic 1.1 host controllers with no
additional software drivers required for operation. All major operating
systems are supported, including Windows Vista, Windows XP, MAC O/S and Linux.
    The Core 2100 Development Kit and Core 2100 Modules are shipping today.
